White Ash Wood is renowned for its hardness, strength, shock resistance, and bending properties. It is also simple to operate with both machines and manual tools. Other woods, such as maple, lack the flexibility of ash. It has a significant sweet spot in terms of breaking since it likes to bend rather than break. Because ash is lighter than maple, a larger selection of big barrel types is possible. The grain is usually straight and uniform, and the wood works well with finishes.
